Default CARWIN VS NELSON

Quote:
A message to all members of Shane Carwin Fan Community I will be fighting Roy Nelson on 1-1-11 in Las Vegas Nevada. The fight will be the C0-Main Event of the Edgar Maynard rematch.I think Roy is a tough opponent for anyone.
Man, they aren't doing Roy's brain any favors are they?

Yeah......I don't see this being a real good fight for Roy.

I would have to disagree.
Unless Carwin develops some cardio, I think Roy takes this.

Roy does have a good gas tank, but he does not seem to fair well against taller fighters.

I think Nelson is going to submit Carwin and begin the downfall of the once great prospect

I can't wait to see the betting lines for this...

Because we all know that marketability equates to skill...

Yeah, I actually saw that fight, but I believe that Stefan is still a little green. And his record is like 24-20. Roy was the seasoned veteran in that fight and it showed. But yes, I see your point, Stefan is 6'11".

I would like to see Roy win that fight against Carwin, but at 6'0 and a 74" reach against a guy that is 6'3 and has an 80" reach......does not look good on paper.

Roy by having cardio... shane is easy to figure out now that his gas tank has been exposed... He was so obsesses with being as big as lesnar and it ended up being his downfall.. hopefully he comes in a little trimmer this time... About 255-260 without cutting weight!!!
